I am a huge fan of the "Blank Minifig" creation by Skimbal. I then saw the remix of this called "Star Trek Giant Minifig" by Xrayjoe.
I took it a little farther and created some more custom parts that allowed me to create the original series characters Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and Scotty.
For convenience I have included all the STL files needed from Skimbal and Xrayjoe. I've also included the Sketchup CAD file if anyone wants to further edit.
At some point I want to do a phaser and tricorder too (unless someone beats me to it?). :)
Common print files for all four characters:
- STL file "Star Trek 3D Badge": Print with yellow on the base, then switch colors to black for the perimeter and center star.
- Print "Young_Adventurer_Eyes_and_Mouth" in black for most characters. Print McCoy eyes in blue. I had to scale this down a bit for it to fit better on my figure (I printed at 85%).
- Print "star trek collar" in black.
- Print "Star_Trek_Chest_2" in the various colors for the characters.
- Print "Snap_Legs" in black
- Print "Snap_Hips" in black with support. This didn't work so well for me, so I also include this file split into two files ("Snap_Hips_HALF 1" and "Snap_Hips_HALF 2") which I then glued together.
- Print "Snap_Arms" in the various character colors
- Print "Arm_Pins_Fixed" in any color (they are hidden in the assembly).
Specific Instructions for Spock:
- Print STL file "spock hair"
- For Spock's head, you can choose between the full part "Spock Head UNCUT" (will require printing with support, but this didn't work so well for me). So I also include "Spock Head CUT Top" and "Spock Head CUT Bottom" which you print separately and then glue together.
Specific Instructions for Kirk/McCoy/Scotty:
- Print STL file "standard hair", I printed Kirk's hair in brown, then black for McCoy and Scotty.
- For the head, you can choose between the full part "Young_Adventurer_Head" (will require printing with support, but this didn't work so well for me). So I also include "Young_Adventurer_Head TOP" and "Young_Adventurer_Head BOTTOM" which you print separately and then glue together.
Glue and assemble parts. I had to shave some of the parts with an Exacto knife to get them to fit.
Then boldly go where no man has gone before!
